If you want to transport me back to the warm fuzzies of my childhood, just hand me a book of Peanuts cartoons. Oh, how I wish I still had some of the well worn paper back volumes my brother and I used to trade back and forth. Whenever we read a really good new cartoon we'd go find the other one so they could read it too. Sure, we sang the songs and watched the animated specials. But nothing beat those books full of Charlie Brown and his adventures. Those guys were more than just sketches on a page. They were our childhood pals.
A few days after I learned that my brother was having a baby boy, I "happened" to spot a sweet Peanuts themed scrapbook at the Hallmark store! Now, my brother isn't as obsessed with sentimental photo collecting as I am...but he'll NEVER be able to resist this book! I've had so much fun getting it ready for the new arrival...turning it into a baby memory book.
It was so easy to start with the pre-decorated pages. All I had to do was add a few special, baby-themed extras!
I had so much fun playing with my old pals as I put this book together. So, as soon as these goodies are in the mail, I'm going to head to a bookstore and find some of those old comic strip books. With any luck I'll discover a few well used copies. That way, I can pretend they used to be ours!
